Hello. My name is Jacob Brooks. I am going on an exchange to Belgium. I live in a family of three; my dad, my brother, and me. My dad adopted my brother and I from Vietnam. My dad is a Nurse Practitioner and works for Suncoast Mental Health. My brother is a college student working on his bachelors in chemical engineering at USF Tampa. I attend St. Petersburg Collegiate High School and will be graduating this spring with my high school diploma and my Associates in the Arts degree. The school activities that I participate in is National Honors Society, Mu Alpha Theta the college honor society, ethics bowl, and varsity tennis. The things I like to do on my spare time is play tennis, cook, bake, hang out with friends, and explore. The reason why I wanted to be an exchange student is to be able to broaden my mind and travel the world. I have always had a love for traveling and experiencing new things. Traveling allows you the opportunity to see into other cultures and even experience thing you could never experience at home. I would love to be able to expand my knowledge of cultures and to have the opportunity to experience what they have to offer. My goal for the exchange is to soak up as much of a cultural experience as I can. I am not going to be afraid to try new things that I have never done before because I do not want to limit what I can learn from.
